Soluble Galectin-1 (sGal-1, also termed LGALS1), soluble CD163 (sCD163) and soluble CD30 (sCD30) have been reported to be elevated in plasma or serum of patients with classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL). We aimed to determine the clinical utility of these biomarkers for evaluation of treatment response compared to thymus and activation regulated chemokine (TARC, also termed CCL17). Plasma or serum samples were prospectively collected among 103 newly diagnosed cHL patients before and after treatment. Levels of sGal-1, sCD163, sCD30 and TARC were correlated with disease characteristics and clinical treatment response. Elevated plasma levels of sGal-1, sCD163, sCD30 and TARC were found in 67%, 21%, 91% and 93% of cHL patients respectively. Mean plasma levels of sGal-1 and sCD30 decreased after treatment but sCD163 did not decrease after treatment. There was no correlation with change of these markers and clinical treatment response in individual patients. TARC levels strongly correlated with disease characteristics and metabolic volume. TARC remained high in 6 out of 7 non-responsive patients and dramatically decreased in 95 out of 96 responsive patients. In summary, elevated pre-treatment levels of sGal-1, sCD163, sCD30 and TARC can be found in patients with cHL. However, only plasma TARC accurately reflects disease activity and correlates with clinical treatment response.
